Modern gadgets have made us complete slaves to machines. There is no work which cannot be done without the assistance of machines and there is not a single area of human activity where machines don’t have to be used. No one can deny the fact that gadgets have not only simplified our lives but also made them more comfortable and luxurious. But on the contrary man’s dependence on them has increased so much that we just cannot do without them at all. If cabs go off the road we cannot reach our destinations. No cooking without LPG cylinder or cooking flame. No, we can’t do even simple calculations, what to talk of washing without washing machine or electricity. If electricity fails, life for each one of us comes to a standstill as all gadgets are operated with it be it AC, TV, computer, a telephone, or any other modern appliance. Perhaps there were times when every work was done with hands be it grinding or travelling far off places. People were tough who could walk for miles and work ceaselessly. In modern times we can’t ascend the stairs without feeling a burden over our stamina. Modern gadgets have completely transformed the human life and health to a great extent. It a fact that machines have become like servants without which life comes to a standstill. Ads by GoogleAdvertise On The Internet  Promote Your Business On Google. Free Rs 2000 Voucher.

Thus we can say that our dependence on modern gadgets has made us complete slaves to machines and that we have lost our spirit to work and vitality, vigor and stamina and therefore no more good health and cheerfulness and endurance prevails. This dependence on machines has transformed the very human psychology. We no longer have the capacity to hard work or bear pains or suffer inconveniences. This all has resulted in increased irritation, tensions, worries and anger. Consequently, human nature is now short-sighted in human values and aspects. Thus ‘slavery’ has made us pleasure-seeking ‘animals’ who care only for animal comforts. In other words we can say that over dependence on machines has made us physically mentally lethargic and emotionally dead. If we want to relive ourselves and come out of this slavery we must resort to hard manual work and instill the spirit of strength and vitality in ourselves thereby we can be disease free and live a healthy lifestyle.
